met the president. you met the secretary of state, then secretary of state hillary clinton. you looked them in the eye. >> that's exactly right. this memo, it came out on the 12th -- i'm sorry, on the 14th. this was about the same time that i met hillary clinton when the bodies came in to andrews air force base. and i think i mentioned this to you before. hillary clinton came up to me and i gave her a handshake and a hug. and when i shook her hand, she said to me, "we are going to have the filmmaker arrested." even at that time she was trying to place a spin on what happened. it wasn't a result of a video. they had two drones above the battle in benghazi feeding real-time video to the situation room in the white house. they could see as it was happening on september 11th and september 12th for seven or eight hours, they watched this battle happen. they didn't watch a video protest. they watched a battle with militants that were associated with al qaeda. >> yeah. now earlier this week we had testimony, brigadier general -- retired brigadier general lovell testified the military should h
an al qaeda group was linked that night. on the night of the attack, mrs. clinton spoke with the president. at 10:07 p.m., clinton sent out a press release before the attack was over, linking the violence to the video. bret baier asked tommy veeter where that information came from. >> september 11, who tells hillary clinton at 10:00 p.m. to put out this statement that says some have sought to justify this vicious behavior, the announcement has already happened about the benghazi attack, as a response to inflammatory material posted on the internet? at 10:00 p.m. eastern time, this is still going on, this attack. so where does that come from? >> i don't know. >> did you also change attacks to demonstrations in the talking points? >> maybe. i don't remember. >> you don't remember? >> dude, this is like two years ago. >> dude? everybody is talking about this. >> we're talking about the process of editing talking points. that's what bureaucrats do. >> reporter: he conceded that the president was not in the situation room on the night of the attack. >> when hillary clinton ta

. this graphic and the speaker.gov. #benghazi is where you can find tweets about how hillary clinton has buckets of blood on her hands. the white house sends more personnel to the bundy ranch over cows than they did to benghazi. it's the place where people think that a white house communications adviser looking at white house talking points is the next watergate. #benghazi isn't just online, it's an entire industry, an entire imaginary realm. it's where, for instance, lindsey graham has actually been living for the past year. >> this is not a fox news story, this is an american story. i'm not satisfied with having the executive branch tell me what happened in benghazi. the scumbags are the people in the white house who lied about this. we're just starting on benghazi. >> #benghazi is the alternate fox news universe where there is only one thing going on in the world and it is benghazi. >> all right. we were waiting for others to ask questions. we know that the next question coming up is from a german reporter. we are not anticipating that that would be about the situation with benghazi, which is
then secretary of state hillary clinton on september 11th, 2012, at 10:07 p.m. before the attack was over linked benghazi violence to the video. we believe this is the first public statement to make that connection. on "special report" last night bret baier asked what information was mrs. clinton relying on at that time? >> who tells hillary clinton at 10:00 p.m. to put out this statement, that says, some have sought to justify this vicious behavior. the announcement has already happened about the benghazi attack. as a response to inflammatory material posted on the internet. the united states deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. our commitment is to religious tolerance. goes back to the very beginning of our nation. let me be clear. there is never any justification for violent acts at anytime. at 10:00 p.m. eastern time this is still going on this attack. where does that come from. >> i don't know. >> reporter: little is actually known about the president's whereabouts about the night on attack. when pressed former spokesman said the president was not in
the republicans polit sizing trying to keep the story alive? certainly al political weapon against hillary clinton if she rungs for president in 2016? >> yeah. let me say when i say, you know, not political, i mean this is of a presidential campaign. in the sense, in the hot house, everything is seen through a political lens. >> doesn't mean when you send someone on the sunday talk shows to intentionallily. and to your broader question, for the republicans, it's all parts of a larger thesis that they have >> i think in some cases, very sincerely of continuous deceit and dissembly by the white house and its agencies and whether it's somehow shafting the tea party and the irs if in cincinnati or undue federal to sole solendra, the solar panel outfit and then you throw in their belief that obama has not been successful in the war on debatable. you mix that with the possibility that the person was a secretary of state at the time of this is likely, if she runs, you know, the favorite to beat whomever they put up for president. and, you know, you have a pretty steamy political mix. >> certainly has got
carney and others. hillary clinton testified the intelligence community had been the principle decider on everything the administration put out there. now you have mike morell saying we didn't emphasized the video stormy, you emphasized the video story. martha: she went on the sunday programs. lots more to talk about on this throughout the morning. steve hayes, thank you so much. bill: a federal judge striking down wisconsin's voter i.d. law. stating that showing a voter i.d. is discrimination and unconstitutional. the attorney general plans to appeal that decision. you will appeal based on what grounds? >> he clearly made a ruling that's contradictory to the law. the u.s. supreme court held that voter i.d. in some forms can be constitutional. it is in 20 states. this judge has said it can't be constitutional period because it makes it harder for latinos and african-americans to get a photo i am d. and therefore to vote. that's not what the law is. >> reporter: the u.s. district judge lynn adelman is the gentleman you are refer to. what does it take to get a photo i.d.? >> it's relativ
and the republicans up on the hill. we have all moved on. remember it was hillary clinton who the statute of whatever had run out after four months. four months after benghazi where she said what difference does it make. tommy vietor said it's a throw back thursday 20 months later. jay carney yesterday was a human pinata for day two and, brian, you're right. good the mainstream media are picking up on it. they asked a lot of questions. interestingly enough, as it turns out last night, we had good coverage here on fox. last night nbc and cbs not a word. last night on abc they had 46 seconds even though there was such compelling testimony there was a guy, air force brigadier general robert lovell the deputy director at africom, he was on the hot seat up on capitol hill yesterday and he made it very clear, we didn't even try to rescue those guys. watch. >> do you feel like the united states was doing everything it could do to protect the people and its facilities abroad? >> no, sir. four individuals died. sir, obviously, we did not respond in time to get there. >> could we have? >> we may have been able
polls and considered a top contender to a hillary clinton run in 2016. but now a report says some republican fund raisers even some in the new jersey area with considering jumping ship from christie for jeb bush as the former florida governor looks at a bid. jeb is also getting some support from his brother. >> i hope jeb runs. and i think he would be a great president. i have no clue what's on his mind. we'll talk when he's ready. i notice he's moving around the country quite a bit. >> doing well in polls. >> yeah. that's fine. they don't mean anything. for him i can guarantee he's not looking at a poll to decide whether or not he wants to run. it's internal. he's checking his core. as he said publicly, i'm thinking about my family. and he knows full well what a run for the presidency can do on family. after all, he's seen his dad and brother run for president. so jeb, if you need advice, give me a call. >> okay. it is worth noting according to a new quinnipiac university poll, jeb easily leads the rest of the 2016 pack in his home state. that includes marco rubio who i think peo
clinton speak thatsecretary panetta night? >> there was a lot of coordination between the state department and defense about response to this. and of course there's a military chain of command about how assets get deployed and there are military decisions made help.which assets can believe me, again, the committee was getting at was a notion that we at the state department did not do everything we could, including coordinating with our military colleagues about a possible response. notion is just not true. it has been repeatedly batted the senate committee on intelligence, by other committees, bipartisan have held who multiple hearings including the house articled services committee. so i'll appreciate this committee's attempt to continue talking about this issue, really werenotion that they pushing today has been repeatedly proven false. tobut it's not an attempt keep talking about it, they are still talking about it. focusing on how to embassy security and -- >> this retired brigadier general who testified this thisng has not spoken to before, before that committee. which youiewpoint jus
kind of interactions have you had? remember when hillary clinton was the secretary of state? was one of her top aids and she had a special arrangement. special employee at the statement department. also have outside clients corporate clients very funky arrangement. senator grassley wanted to know how many of these special employees do you have at the state department. evidence never found out. it was a couple of years later when a liberal organization got a leak and we finally found out. >> i don't know. i think that they just don't even try, congress. out of any administration. but, panel, let me go to 2016. today former president george w. bush making a big endorsement. >> i hope general -- jeb runs. i think he would be a great president. i have no clue what's on his mind. and we will talk when he is ready. i can guarantee you. he is not looking at a poll to decide whether or not he wants to run. it's internal. he is checking his core. and as he said publicly i'm thinking about my family. and, of course, he knows full well what a run for the presidency can do on family. after all h
, it was an attack. >> jones at the state department, and an e-mail that went to others, hillary clinton's chief of staff says she told the libyan ambassador september 12, 12:46 p.m., i told him the group that conducted the attack is affiliated with islamic extremists. would you agree or disagree with that statement? >> yes i would agree. the timing of it, i do not know. the content, yes. >> the scandal that is here, that some choose to ignore, a phony scandal, is the fact that the cia station chief, the military themselves. you have the person sitting front of us, who is the head of intelligence and he is looking at the intelligence. they come to the conclusion that it is austria -- sharia and then you have the state telling libyans. none of them think it is a video. none of them. the military, the cia, the cia station chief, the state department, all of them, the fact that the time, mr. chairman, the facts do not point to a video. that only comes from the white house. what was going on in the room, general? i were people were under attack and people were dying. what is the military doing? >> -
that country was turned into a massive killing field the world stood by with clinton in the peacekeeping chief had actionable intelligence information that could have mitigated the genocide. also holding a series of meetings or hearings we heard from people who said we had the information on hand. he was there wanted to take effective action that was of course, of 1 million people who were slaughtered in and with that information it could have been prevented or largely mitigated. the and the overall book to the corpses piled high and was shocked. ladies and gentlemen, it is happening again as our witnesses know and bear witness to the question is if the phrase never again is one that we use a and whether or not we have two distinguished witnesses and also and richards assistant secretary for population refugee and migration. while sending two people to justify is encouraging it shows the issue but the question i will ask them is whether redoing? but are we doing enough? in 2012 the administration created the atrocity provincial board following a study that said preventing mass atrocities is a
the secretary of state call up stuttgart and say "deploy some assets" or does she -- didn't secretary clinton speak with secretary panetta that night and general dempsey? >> there was a lot of coordination between the state department and the defense department about response to this. and, of course, there's a military chain of command about how assets get deployed and there are military decisions made about which assets make sense and can help to be deployed. believe me, again, what you -- the committee was getting at was a notion that we at the state department did not do everything we could, including coordinating with our military colleagues about a possible response. that notion is just not true. it has been repeatedly batted down by the senate select committee on intelligence, by other committees, bipartisan committees, who have held multiple hearings, including the house armed services committee. so while i appreciate this committee's attempt to continue talking about this issue, really this notion that they were pushing today has been repeatedly proven false. >> well, but it's not an
with stronger requests for action. >> that means then secretary of state hillary clinton has some splaining to do. but so does president obama. remember, he is the commander and chief. the military cannot move without his order. and he obviously didn't give it. why? the general is as confused as i am. >> we didn't know how long this would last when we became aware of the distress nor did we completely understand what we had in front of us. >> so that means that the attack could have been larger. the military didn't know. and forces didn't mobilize to save the people under siege? that's shocking. see, that's what this story is all about. the failure of the u.s. government to protect americans under fire in benghazi. and then after the fact trying to say oh the killers weren't organized terrorists. are we all getting this. but, again, the national media won't cover it. does it get any worse than that in our democracy? talking points is angry. the obama administration was completely derelict in the benghazi terror attack and was dishonest in the aftermath. and the national press doesn't give a
of assembleed. >> it was -- we felt it was an shareal sharia. >> to secretary of state hillary clinton's closest aide, including sheryl mills, the ambassador was sold share why wa sharia hasbeen responsible. mrs. clinton sent out a press release linking the video to the benghazi violence, mrs. clinton statement of the out of sink with -- sync with intelligence it was -- with the ben rhodes e-mail. testifying that state department did not respond quickly that night. >> it is not what they did in that situation, it is what they done do, they did not come forward with stronger requests for action. >> what was the mood -- the feeling? to save our people? >> it was desperation to be able to -- >> what. >> desperation to begin situational awareness and to do something. >> he was not in the operational al chain of command. >> meeting some who would like to distort your testimony, and suggestion tha that you are testifying we could have, should have done a lot more than we did because we had capabilities we did not use lies. >> this is -- utilize. >> this is not my testimony. >> thank you, general. >> w
adams has got to be spinning in his grave. jay and former clinton special counsel davis. good to see you. >> hi, sean. >> hi, sean. >> we went round and round about whether they were alone and depends, we have been told a series of lies here and we can prove them. i'm asking you as a democrat, in light of what john adams wrote his wife that day in 1800, does any of this bother you? you find difficult to swallow, jay carney's propaganda? >> i don't share your belief, you're entitled to your belief -- >> they are called facts. >> got to let me finish. >> it's a fact. >> are you going to let me finish. >> go ahead. >> you had plenty of time in your opening. >> i don't believe jay carney did not lie and i have one fact you did not address. i read the 13 versions of the talking points beginning with version one that the cia said it drafted that was circulated and went back and forth over 13 different versions. >> i did, too. >> one sentence never changed in all 13 versions, fact, the cia wrote the words this was a spontaneous demonstration, that's their phrase, and then it ended with triggere
is affiliated with islamic extremists. this coming from the state department, cheryl mills, secretary clinton posses chief of staff. i live -- i would like to enter this into the record. >> what was the date and time? >> september 12, 2012, hours after the attack. it is what the state department told the libyan government what was happening. "i told the libyan ambassador that the group attacks are affiliated with islamic extremists. those were the facts as the state department knew them. >> without objection, so ordered. copies will be distributed. we now welcome our guest and witnesses. general robert lovell is the former deputy director for intelligence and knowledge development director at the united states african command. and the former deputy command general of the joint task force. and a research fellow at the hoover institution. mr. david ross, phd, is a senior fellow at the foundation for defense of democracies. mr. frederick is a senior associate for middle east program at the carnegie endowment for international peace. your title is impressive but they're all doctorates. pursuant t
? >> i'm sure we could have done more. >> secretary of hillary clinton whispered, evidently, according to one of the mothers, whispered in the ear said, "it was the video that had done this." is that true? >> absolutely not, sir. >> when did you think it was over? when were our americans in harms way? when were they safe? >> they are still not safe today, sir. >> when did you think the fight was over? >> we are still there. >> that night, though, september 12, while we still had people in benghazi, when was the fight over? >> when the people from benghazi finally made their way back and were extracted back to tripoli. >> your opinion, your vantage point -- they're in libya, was al qaeda on the run? >> no, sir. >> what was going on with al qaeda, september 11, september 12 in the months leading up to that? were they on the run? >> no, sir. there were actually affiliates and islamist extremists our responsible for the perpetration of these attacks. >> were they growing in strength, shrinking and strength? >> my estimation would be that they were growing in strength. in number and in capa
they sitting around for the state department and hillary clinton to call them up and say do something? what did they actually do? >> we sent the predator drone overhead to be able to -- >> did we do enough, general? >> sir. >> and it's those infamous talking points that susan rice gave on the sunday talk shows that has lawmakers and many americans hopping mad as newly-released e-mails show senior aides neck deep in sharing those talking points. and it's an e-mail from deputy national security adviser ben rhodes that really stands out, pushing rice to say the attack was, quote, rooted in protest over an anti-muslim video. senator john mccain telling fox news a short time ago the appearance of a cover-up is why we need a select committee to investigate. >> the appearance by susan rice was alleging there was a hateful video that sparked a spontaneous demonstration was not only not based on any fact be, but they went ahead in contradiction to information such as the station chief in libya who said there was no spontaneous demonstration. >> powerful news day, harris. a lot of information coming forw
. we'll play the sound and we'll get your reaction. >> does it matter president clinton, secretary clinton, excuse me? the difference between a coordinated terrorist attack you should have planned for, closing the consulate rather than keeping it open does matter. difference between a spontaneous event, rise of terrorism a broader foreign policy failure is substantial. you can not let these people get away with it anymore than you let richard nixon get away with what he did. jenna: is it fair. >> yes it is. if intelligence community saying this isn't a terrorist attack, they didn't mention some video that caused this, but administration decided no, we don't want it to be a terrorist attack. that flies in the face of our claim al qaeda is on the ropes. let's blame it on a video. if that is what happened and the president of the united states threw his people in the white house skew that intelligence reporting and said no, no, it wasn't our fault. it was because of a demonstration that nobody could have -- what it is president saying i'm going to use or the president's people, i'm go
a few years ago. president clinton traveled to the airport in rwanda and issued what has come to be known as the clinton apology for failing to do more to stop the violence. later, president george w. bush famously wrote, quote, not on my watch, end quote, in the argin of a report on the rwanda genocide. no president wants an atrocity on their watch. i venture this much is true of president obama, and yet every indication points to the fact that the crisis currently unfolds in south sudan is headed to the way of rwanda. in fact, yesterday the u.n. high commissioner for human rights characterized south sudan as, quote, on the verge of catastrophe, end of quote, but with the stakes as high as they are, the situation is simply not being met with the urgency it demands. it is time for bold action. president obama, who so far has failed, he has failed on this issue, he should immediately dispatch former president george w. bush, who has a great reputation in africa, and former president bill clinton, who also has a good reputation in africa to help negotiate lasting peace and to co
: let's be joined by doug schoen. former advisor to bill clinton and monica crowley. stun can the testimony we just heard. you could tell the brigadier general was emotional. it struck me when he said it's not that we could or couldn't have gotten there in time, he says we should have tried. he says the military is always trained to go in the direction of the gunfire and he felt that night we did not. he said the attracts were attributable almost -- the attacks were attributable almost right away, and we heard of this state department memo to the libyan officials, this isal this al-sharia. >> this is not a partisan matter. you know and monica knows i'm a democrat. i have supported the clintons. i probably will probably hope to support hillary clinton. but she and her team have many questions to answer. the president has much to answer because the so-called talking points, the emails that have come out suggest a very different story. the obvious question is where did these talking points come from, how could they have been crafted in light of what you reported and what the gene
time covering it anymore. are they trying to protect hillary clinton in the next general election? is that it? or do they think this is a fox story that is tired and the american people are sick of hearing it. it proves fnc has been right all along and we should have been covering it. lindsey graham said last night this certainly is a smoking gun. >> this is proof positive that right after the attack, three days after the attack,ç they did not give a damn about the intelligence. they wanted to create a political narrative to protect the president and i think most americans find that offensive and i'm not going to stop until somebody is held accountable for allowing it to be a death trap, somebody be fired for not coming to the aid of these people for at least nine and a half hours and somebody be fired for not protecting the american people. and i don't believe ben rhodes did this by himself. somebody in the white house higher up than this concocted this story because they were worried about the reelection. when susan rice said i have no regrets, i gave the american people the
't agree. >> back it up. >> you say no. >> i'm going to back it it up right now. hillary clinton, hopefully, got willing, polls show today would win and would take over the electorates and has a lead over jeb bush and the other g.o.p. potential candidates in 2016. we're going to hear about benghazi 247 every network. and i agree with howard that the perception is the american people have moved on and cared more about the clippers and a gay who died on a gurney in oklahoma. >> you guys are so absolutely wrong. >> i do agree with that. >> i am surprised with you. >> i just said i agree with you on that point. >> you are an obama person, you work for the "the washington post." you work for cnn. you know how much air time all of cnn has. you know how much air time they have in the morning. two hour blocks. they did not run this story because it reflects poorly on barack obama. that's the fact. you should know it and you should say it. >> listen, you understand first of all that the press doesn't always cover the most important stories. >> no, i don't understand that. >> i am not defending that.
bush's intellect was slapped around every day. the majority leader called him a loser. bill clinton in particular was impeached. you saw the way bill clinton was treated in many respects. forget the way they're look at now. i don't think any of them had an easy time. >> he went on to say this antigovernment attitude is completely newç just because we have an african-american president. we did reach out to his office and haven't heard back for a comment. >> we've got lots more news to tell you about. once again we turn to heather nauert. >> got news now to bring you at nine minutes after the hour. we break in with breaking news that came in overnight. prison officials try a new drug cocktail to kill an inmate but the execution is botched. the inmate died more than 43 minutes later of a heart attack. now all executions in the state of oklahoma are on hold. the man exploded after the first of three injections and then the execution stopped. some witnesses say the convicted murderer then tried to get up and talk. pretty gruesome description there. >>> witnesses say he looked likeç "
.w. bush, george w. bush, supported the mission of the ex-im bank, as did bill clinton. all these presidents were staunch supporters of capitalism and the ex-im bank. listen to what president reagan said when he signed re-authorization, a bill that was re-authorized almost unanimously in 1986. quote, this sends an important signal to both our exporting community and foreign suppliers, that american exporters will continue to be able to compete vigorously for business throughout the world. perhaps an even more conservative voice, former vice president cheney said, in 1997, some of my fellow conservatives on the hill may have a philosophical problem about the fact that the bank -- with the -- problem with the fact that the bank is a government agency. but if they consider the success of its lending programs, it would be difficult for them to object on budgetary grounds. for every $1 put into the ex-im, there's been a $20 return to the u.s. economy. and further, again, same speech, vice president cheney, ex-im bank is remarkably effective at helping create jobs, opportunities f
